In a perfect storm, residual post-pandemic and new cost-of-living pressures, coupled with ongoing problems like fatigue and burnout, are contributing to an increase in psychological injuries. Our new Allianz claims data revealed a 46% increase in mental health (psychological) claims since pre-pandemic times.
To help ensure thriving and connected workplaces of the future, Allianz believes organisations need to embark on a Workplace Realignment.
“With ongoing disruptions we've continued to see a disconnect between managers, employees and organisations on the most important workplace mental health issues. This disconnect continues to have a serious impact on workplace satisfaction and employee retention, and in turn, is continuing a worrying trend of increasing mental health claims in the workplace.” Allianz Australia Chief General Manager of Personal Injury, Julie Mitchell, said.
